UCO Asphalt Plant

In line with the rigorous plans, the “Promoter“ has recently launched a new division under UCO Engineering W.L.L. (“the Asphalt Division” or “UCO Asphalt”) an Asphalt Plant and Asphalt Paving Operations.

Objective

Our main objective is to become one of the best construction companies in the region that its clients, employees and proprietor are proud to be associated with. The route of our mission is to incorporate and implement the following:

  • A multi-cultural team based environment where our main purpose is to expand the potential of our people within the team.
  • A total commitment to total quality as firms believe that this the way we can achieve our mission. Quality is not only confined to the quality of asphalt pavement but includes all aspect of the business, and most importantly how we deal with and respond to clients. Quality is about satisfying the needs of our clients.
  • Establishing quality objectives and reviewing them through management review process. Performance data is analyzed to assess continual suitability of the quality objectives and quality policy.
  • Maintaining transparency in all that we do. Transparency not only creates confidence in our clients but also reduces the burden on our employees, as mistakes are seen as methods and tools for improvement rather than a method to blame.
  • Ensuring that we meet customer requirements and expectations and finding solutions to their issues.
  • Ensuring that our activities comply with legal requirements and other international standards, including the highest levels of health for all employees and the general public.

Industrial Division – Asphalt Recycling

On June, 2014, BAK Group’s UCO Engineering launched the first re-heat asphalt recycling machine by BENEDETTI in Bahrain. UCO Engineering is the sole and authorized distributer of BENEDDETI in the gulf region.

The machine provides more sustainable asphalt without compromising durability, service life, and the environment. The product has become a must-have consideration in the materials selection process.

Re-HEAT – the only 100% asphalt recycling available in the world which allows for operation both day and night.

It offers twice the crack mitigation against underlying cracks versus a conventional mill and inlay. The process recycles to grade over castings already in the roadway so there is no need to raise and/or replace existing castings. The costs are far lower than comparable rehabilitation, and it recycles 100% of the asphalt roadway with no trucking of additional asphalt or waste asphalt and no stockpiling.

It uses a dual stage incineration system to protect air quality during operation, thus providing one of the cleanest forms of emission control.

Benefits:

The re-heat recycling minimizes the demand on oil and aggregate which are non-renewable resources.

It provides access to billions of gallons of petroleum contained in the asphalt on existing roads and highways. In the US alone, the existing 4 million miles of roadways hold a 270 billion gallon petroleum reserve

It eliminates the dumping of old asphalt into crowded landfills.

It uses a dual stage incineration system to protect air quality during operation, thus providing one of the cleanest forms of emission control

It utilizes propane, which is a cleaner, more environmentally sensitive source of energy.

It uses 65% less energy (BTUs) to process 1 ton of asphalt than conventional methods, CO2 emissions are reduced by 65% per ton processed.

It has been proven to lower your carbon footprint by over 80% during construction.

It eliminates milling machines, asphalt plants, trucking, tack coat or shoulder – environmentally priceless,

How it works

  1. Heating Existing pavement – The road surface is softened with radiant convection heat.
  2. Removing top layer – The rotary blade system dislodges the material for processing.
  3. Adding Asphalt Emulsion – Additives are injected to reconstitute the new asphalt.
  4. On-Board Plant – A heated mixing plant uniformly blends with additives with the asphalt.
  5. Relaying Recycled Material – The new asphalt is immediately placed to the correct slope ad grade.
  6. Compaction – While still hot, the newly recycled asphalt is rolled to final compaction.
